Today, Jan 5 2010, just found out I have PCOS, after ton of blood work and an ultrasound confirmed it,

I can't say I'm sad but wonder why do I have this, how did I get it and what can I do about it.

So far I've been searching on the internet and that's when I discovered this site.

Any suggestions, or help......

Editor's comments: Where did your PCOS come from? It is a process that probably started while you were still in your mother's womb. We discussed this problem in a past issue of the PCOS Health Review newsletter.

Polycystic ovary syndrome is partly a genetic disorder. However, you can influence how your genes behave by improving your diet, getting more exercise, and adopting a healthier lifestyle. More information is available in this newsletter.

The good news is that you can gain a high degree of control over polycystic ovarian syndrome.

Here are a few things you can do about PCOS:

1) 2) A healthy diet plays an absolutely crucial role in managing the symptoms of PCOS, including infertility, acne, weight, hair loss, male-pattern hair growth, and depression. A healthy diet will also greatly reduce your risk of developing diabetes and heart disease.

A good place to get diet advice is from this PCOS diet book.

3) Regular exercise is vital, especially if you have a weight issue. Daily exercise, when combined with the correct diet, can be as effective as metformin (Glucophage), but without its side effects.

3) Selected nutritional supplements such as vitex or d-pinitol can be useful in helping you to normalize your hormones.

There are a number of other nutritional supplements that have been shown to be helpful for reducing symptoms related to polycystic ovary syndrome.

By knowing what to do, you empower yourself and gain a sense of control over this disorder.
